Hello... I am 25 years old... I have antiphospholipid syndrome and factor V leiden... I have sent 7 lil angels to be with Jesus...this is my 7th pregnancy and I am 33 weeks tomorrow. My BP is typically 90's over 50's... up until today. I am on Lovonox injections and baby asprin daily. tuesday I had lots of "dizzy spells " and double vision but my BP was fine so he was not concerned... Last night I noticed swelling in my ankles... today I have pitting edema to mid calf... my hands are swollen and my face is as well. My BP was 136/80... the Dr says he is not concerned because it is still in the "safe range" but I am thinking its a BIG jump... I have not felt myself at all this week.... completely exhausted... and VERY nauseated. I started today with pain... pressure, kind of like heartburn directly below my sternum, and straight through to my spine... My bra irritates it terribly. He says it is the baby's bum pushing up... I feel so silly... am I nuts?
